To integrate Amazon EFS and Graphite APIs with your monitoring system, please reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Amazon EFS and Graphite APIs and how that can support your monitoring system.
Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) provides a scalable but easy-to-use elastic NFS (network file system) for AWS Cloud services and on-premises resources. It supports on-demand requirements to the petabyte scale. It is fully managed and can shrink or expand as you add and remove files. This high level of change removes the need to manage capacity to accommodate growth.
Amazon EFS provides parallel shared access to thousands of Amazon EC2 instances, allowing your applications to achieve high aggregate throughput levels and IOPS (Input/output operations per second) with consistent low latencies.
You can use Amazon EFS for almost any purpose, from small home storage to business-critical applications, including big data analytics, database backups, application development, testing, web serving, content management, media and entertainment workflows, and container storage.
You can monitor your Amazon EFS file systems using Amazon CloudWatch. Metrics include the number of client connections, the amount of data read or written, file system storage, and more. You can use your Amazon EFS console to display a series of graphs based on the raw data from Amazon CloudWatch. For more extensive monitoring, you would find MetricFire an excellent companion thanks to the more advanced features.
With Metricfire, you can turbocharge your Amazon Elastic File System monitoring services. By integrating Amazon CloudWatch with the Metricfire platform, you can display your metrics on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see, scraping the unwanted data. You can also establish clear rules to toss out data you no longer have, plus get custom alerts via email or Slack when your EFS files system falls out of alignment.
Graphite-API is a tool designed to fetch metrics from time series databases such as Whisper or Cyanite. Once it has gathered the metrics, it then renders graphs or JSON data out of each of these time series. Graphite-API is an API-based alternative to Graphite-web, so it does not have any built-in dashboard. Instead, this AP server tool replicates Graphite-web behavior, and works with the abundant Graphite dashboard applications available on the market such as Grafana.
The Graphite-API application comes with several improvements over Graphite-web:
Graphite API does not come with any web or graphical interfaces. This feature gap is where MetricFire comes into its own.
With our Hosted Graphite solution, we've taken the best parts of open-source Graphite and supercharged them. We also added everything missing in Graphite: a built-in agent, team accounts, granular dashboard permissions, and integrations with other technologies and services like AWS, Heroku, logging tools, and more. Hosted Graphite's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see, so you can discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or the Slack messaging platform.
MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.
MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.
